Shirtless, Juhann Bégarin prolongs training and multiplies the shots on one of the baskets with a member of the staff. A few meters away, sitting on a bench, Amara Sy, Ismaël Kamagate and Gauthier Denis are in the middle of a discussion. The atmosphere is relaxed, relaxed, this Sunday at the beginning of the afternoon in the place of life of Paris Basketball, the huge sports complex The One Ball in Noisy-le-Grand. And yet the situation is critical for the capital club.
Beaten six times in the last seven days of the regular season, unable to ensure a maintenance that seemed impossible to escape them in April, the Parisians only have a head start on the relegation zone. Tuesday evening (8:30 p.m.), they will simply play their future in Betclic Elite on the Boulogne-Levallois floor.
Metropolitans who, although in the midst of an internal war between the representatives of Levallois and Boulogne, will not make a gift to their neighbor. The stakes are too high for them since they can still finish the season in one of the first two places in the championship, a classification which offers the advantage of the field at least until the final of the playoffs. They have just recruited shooter Obi Emegano as a medical joker for Jordan McRae.
